        2005 Ford Focus sedan. The RAV is a marked improvement.

          It sure is. One thing that I noticed that Toyota does better than most is how smooth the ride is and how quiet the cabin is. Honda doesn't compare to Toyota in this regard, at least the last time I was in the market for a car. Nice buy!

            Toyota is going nuts with their grills lately. Filtering shown from Lexus.

              I test-drove the CRV plus the Outback and Forester. I thought the CRV would be a real contender but not after driving it - not only was the ride not as good as the others, but the interior felt cheap and the center console area was set up really strangely.

              Came down to the Outback or the RAV4... went with the Toyota in part due to its reputation for reliability and in part because everyone and their grandmother drives a Subie in this mountain town. I heard about a 2016 Outback recall on the radio yesterday so I think I made the right choice.

                Yup, certainly seems like Subarus are on a steep upward trend. I see a lot more WRXs and Foresters, than before, with a few friends trading in their Toyotas/Hondas for Subaru. I also considered a WRX/Acura TL-SH over my current car when I was shopping, but I went with the more comfortable/quieter option, as performance was no longer the biggest factor for me. Also, as you stated, the interior was also cleaner styled in my current car, than the other two (too aggressive for my tastes). Great choice.

                  Recalls are just part of the game with cars. There are so many components that something is inevitably going to fail at a higher than expected rate and trigger a recall. I don't think I've ever owned a car that had zero recalls.

                  With that said, I'm sure you will enjoy the Rav4.

                    I am more worried when automakers don't have any recalls.

                            Just ordered several items today... I finally got me a Ludlow Summer weight Cotton-Linen Blazer in Deep Water in my size, several Nordstrom white pinpoint dress shirts, NYSCollection Stanton sunglasses in silver-black/smoke, and Ultimate Slim Lightweight Built-In-Flex Khakis in San Francisco Sky.

                              Just eBayed my 2nd pair of used Allen Edmonds... hopefully these are as nice as the Fifth Avenues I eBayed earlier this year!

                              A pair of Byrons in black. I don't wear black shoes often so I didn't want to spend much, this seemed to be just the pair I needed.
                              $56.

                              Here are the Fifth Avenues I got for $70:

                                Is there a difference between the Byron and Fifth Ave? Look near identical to me (outside color, obviously)
